June 25, 2024by Rediet Assefa0

Many of us are committed to raising healthy children, but a complex challenge stands in our way: the double burden of malnutrition. This means we see a rise in childhood obesity alongside undernutrition.

This situation demands a multifaceted approach. Simply promoting healthy eating at home isn’t enough.

Empowering Children, Equipping Parents

Strong school health programs can be a game-changer. By educating children about healthy habits and physical activity, these programs empower them to make informed choices throughout their lives.

Furthermore, school programs can cater to children facing different nutritional challenges, ensuring no child falls behind. Integrating physical activity into the school day fosters a love for movement and its health benefits.

Investing in the Future

By investing in comprehensive school health programs, we create a ripple effect. We empower children, equip parents, and ultimately, build a healthier generation.

The Role of Organizations

Organizations like UNICEF Ethiopia play a vital role in addressing the double burden. Their work strengthens school health programs, ensuring all children have access to the knowledge and resources they need to thrive.
